LG DvD reader problem

I have been having this problem with my LG DvD reader for some time now.Whenever i press the Eject button , it refuses to open. It makes an attempt to open,makes a wierd noise and then it closes again, and the light is beeping through out all that process.Sometimes it just opens half way and then closes. I dont know what to do, i checked the system,and it says that the device is working ok.I doubt that a program is causing this due to the fact that it hardly opens even when i restart the computer. Could anyone help me out on this problem?

Thank You For Reading

Disconnect the IDE cable and check the drive behavior again. If the tray still behaves mad, return the drive.
